Event activities start at 11:00am and hikes start at 12:00pm. Activities include a wildlife demo, a warm outdoor fire, and hot cocoa after the hike.

You can choose between an easy and moderate hike for 1 or 2 hours. There's also a self-guided tour too. Remember to dress warm with multiple layers, wear sturdy hiking boots, and consider bringing a water bottle.
